He was so deeply touched by the works of Debussy and Manuel de Falla that for a while he was preparing to become a musician.
Federico Garcia Lorca first had become an enthusiastic discipline respecting de Falla as his master, then they became close friends. When in the summer of 1936, at the beginning of the civil war Franco's men took away Lorca, de Falla, being apolitical until then, moved heaven and earth to free his friend – unfortunately, without success. At the Lorca memorial evening on September 25th at MÜPA his writings and his folk song adaptations will be heard and Balázs Fülei will play pieces by Debussy and de Falla, having such a deep effect on the Spanish poet and playwright.
